PPC #51 - CAS? Yikes!

My heart sunk just a little bit when I read Nina's challenge for Playing in Paradise #51 - Clean and Simple using hearts. CAS & me are not besties. I persevered, though, and in my humble opinion I did it :) You should play along too - you have until noon on Thursday to link up!
Supplies: red cardstock from MFP (from JJ!)
heart doily from Royal; button from Dress it Up!;
twine from Emily; sentiment from Stampin' Up!;
silhouette stamps from Inkadinkado;
Colorbox Frost White pigment ink; Worn Lipstick distress ink
Pigment ink & I don't always jive either, but I'm pretty proud of myself - I didn't smudge it all to heck, and I even set it aside & let it dry naturally for a while before giving it a 'just to be sure' zap with the heat gun. {monkey clapping!} It's the little things, folks...lol. The kids are home for a snow day today, so send blueberry mojitos! (Well, any flavour, but obviously blueberry is best, right, Emily? :P)
xoxo,
Jessi

Gorgeous CAS Valentine, Jessi! First, I have the hardest time finding doilies and, second, I have no idea how to use them.

Emily Keaton said...

Right-O on the blueberry mojitos!! Hope you made it through the snow day without having to imbibe *too* much ;)!!!

I do believe you NAILED this lovely CAS Valentine, even though you aren't besties with the whole CAS thing. LOVE that heart doily--why can't I ever find such lovelies?? I have a hard enough time tracking down plain ol' round ones!! And it's nice to see that you are playing so nicely with your pigment ink--high marks on cooperation there. Now, no running with scissors, and you'll have a high-marks report card!!!

Almost the weekend--hang in there, my friend!!!
